August 13, 2020 Now it’s showerheads?!

“Frankly it’s silly,” Appliance Standards Awareness Project Executive Director Andrew deLaski told The Associated Press. “The country faces serious problems. We’ve got a pandemic, serious long-term drought throughout much of the West. We’ve got global climate change. Showerheads aren’t one of our problems.” (from EcoWatch article: https://www.ecowatch.com/trump-showerheads-water-2646968010.html?rebelltitem=2#rebelltitem2)

It would be one thing if consumers were unhappy but Consumer Reports  found that ‘the top water-saving and rain-shower models we tested provide a strong flow.’”

Beyond wasting water deLaski said “the plan would raise greenhouse gas emissions when more fuel is burned in homes with gas water heaters and at the power plants that supply power to homes with electric water heaters.” (from https://thehill.com/policy/energy-environment/511736-energy-department-showerheads-rollback-trump-complaints).
